An endoscopic brow lift is a cosmetic procedure that elevates the eyebrows and forehead to lift the sagging of the skin and decrease the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines between the brows. An endoscopic brow lift can address issues that occur as we age, including wrinkle lines that can appear on the forehead and frown lines that make us look angry or tired.
Also known as an eyebrow or forehead lift, the procedure is a minimally invasive procedure with a series of small incisions hidden in the hair. Specialized equipment is utilized to gently release and elevate the brow tissue. There is less bruising and a faster healing time with an endoscopic brow lift surgery than the classic procedure.
“I did a lot of research before choosing a surgeon. I like and trust Dr. Morgenstern as he is artistic, he aims for a natural look and gives attention to detail. Dr. Morgenstern is a perfectionist.”
You are a great candidate for an endoscopic brow lift if you are in good physical health, a non-smoker, and have realistic expectations from the surgery. The best candidates are typically between the ages of 40 and 65, although even some people in their 30’s who feel they look older than their years can benefit from an endoscopic brow lift in Philadelphia. There are also some people with inherited conditions such as the Neanderthal brow (very low or heavy) or have deep furrowed lines.
An endoscopic brow lift should be avoided for anyone in later stages of ptosis of the eyebrows, with sagging cheeks and deepening of the nasolabial crease, with blood clotting issues, or have a propensity to develop thick scar tissue.
Any plastic surgery carries some degree of risks, including bad reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, elevated hairline, eye dryness, facial asymmetry, fluid accumulation, infection, itchiness, loss of hair (around the incision), numbness, poor healing, scarring and skin loss. There is also the rare complications of blood clots (deep venous thrombosis), which can result in pulmonary embolism.
You may feel some discomfort and pain after your surgery. Your surgeon can prescribe pain medication for relief. You may get a drainage tube, which is removed a day or two after your surgery. If necessary, sutures are removed at the appropriate time.
Once you get home, you will need to elevate your head while sleeping. You can use cold compresses to minimize swelling, which can take up to a week to fade. Scarring heal over the first two weeks and should fade over time. Most brow lift procedures result in permanent scarring, though minimal. The majority of patients return to work and their usual routine 10 to 14 days after their surgery. It is best to avoid any strenuous activities for at least two weeks.
